People’s Choice Award

All during November and December, art enthusiasts walked through The Renaissance Art Gallery admiring the international miniature art show of 55 artists and 161 works of art, from 17 states and 2 countries. Each person was given the chance to select his or her own personal favorite. At the end of the month, all the votes were counted.

“Morning has Broken” by James Andrews (Bellevue, OH) was the overall winner. James’ other works, “Tobacco Barns” and “Water Lily” also received many votes. Clearly, James was a favorite among Huntington’s art lovers.

There was a tie for second place. John Beach’s (Staines, Middlesex, England)
“First Born” and Karen Chamblin’s (Belmont, WV) “Bathing Sparrow” received the identical number of votes.

This popular international exhibit is held each year at The Renaissance Art Gallery
